What is the Best Surveillance Camera that is Cheap?

by mltan30 / February 23, 2006 2:53 PM PST

Can you help me find the best quality surveillance camera that is cheap and reliable. Also, is there a program that can view all the camera's recording. Example, 1 camera to be installed in 5 room. I want to know whether a server can view all 5 of it with just one monitor? Pls reply your knowledge and expertise on this. Thank You very much.

Don't you mean 5 cameras, 1 per room?

Anyhow, I will NOT find your best for cheap but note that many can use a KWorld 8 port video capture card and cameras you find all over plus some PC. Figure about 129 for the card and about 39 bucks per camera then your PC.

Then it will come out badly.
